The release of the “Synths, Beats and Drawbars” album teaser attracted scores of glowing reviews in less than 24 hours. Not surprising as this intelligently produced mix of urban, electro and dance tracks appeal to an educated audience who appreciate dance anthems, whilst wooing a younger crowd who ache for something new and exciting.
The album kicks off with Headlock; a track so upbeat it ‘screams’ instant classic. Hard-hitting drumbeats, uplifting synths and a secret weapon of truly hypnotic female vocals; the song doesn’t fail to seduce the listener into a state of energy-fuelled euphoria. The album is as innovative as it is diverse and the track ‘Speakeasy’ is testament to this. Real live brass; Hammond organs, and truly cutting-edge drums and synths. Classic 1930s swing meets the modern world in a flurry of irresistibly crisp and catchy vocals, whilst beautifully crafted melodies ensure that the listener never forgets what they’ve just heard. This is a track that works so harmoniously, you’d think divine intervention was at play.
